Yesterday Beverly went to Sonic in Grapevine. That comes as no surprise to those of you who know her. I think she is on a 1st-name basis with every Sonic in Texas.
Well, anyway, when she went to leave -- her car wouldn't start. So, she called me and told me what had happened. She then called a friend who works close by and got a ride back to her office. I went soon after to check her car. Immediately I'm thinking new starter. I'll have to get the car towed. Mechanics. Labor. $$$$$$.
But then I thought, "Wait a minute! It could be as simple as a dead battery." So, that's what I decided to check 1st. I drove around the corner to NAPA and got a new battery -- and all is well.
I wonder how many of you tend to think like me: Worst-case scenarios. I am really working on that. And I'm finding that circumstances are seldom as bad as I can conjure them up to be. And I'm also learning to be more aware of the presence of God in it all. After all, He is El Roi -- "the God Who Sees." That's the name we will study this week.
